    I bought this trap online for around $60.It did have some issues with being completely sealed up.Two holes big enough for rats to get out.I fixed it myself and didn't get any help from the seller so I'm not going to say where I got it.It is called a repeating trap and I have heard folks talking about them for years but couldn't figure out how to build one.Its hard to see but there are 10 rats in there.I set it last night with some stale pizza and had 10 rats this morning.

    you need to upload your pic onto backyard chicken, photobucket, flicker, etc.. first..
    then open it and post the address here... That link you posted is the location of the pic in YOUR computer... [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help with the pictures.Really is easy when you know how to do it.I set that trap again last night in the same place and got 3 more.Moved it to a different place tonight.Hopefully it will be full again.[​IMG]

    I've never heard of a "repeating trap" before. But it DEFINITELY looks like it's worth the investment!

    Me thinks I must have one!

    Great find! [​IMG]
